So I’ve walked past this new dessert pop-up in Festival Walk for the last month or so and finally decided to give it a shot (their food photography is absolutely amazing and seeing all these images plastered around the mall will get your mouth watering in no time).
We ordered the chocolate waffle and strawberry french toast. Honestly, in terms of food, it is quite hard to fault them. The waffle was crisp on the sides but soft and fluffy on the inside. The smore idea (placing melted marshmallows inside of the two heart shaped waffles) is an absolute genius idea and adds great texture and sweetness into the dish. In fact, I would say that it is probably a plus that the waffle batter isn’t as sweet as the usual ones you get at say UCC or Pokka because of the pavlova and marshmallows and belgian chocolate chip ice cream. The one thing I would comment on negatively is that the french toast is coated with salted butter, which gives the bread a salty aftertaste – something that I’m not quite used to experiencing with the dish. It is also rather unusual for restaurants to leave the leaves on the strawberry on the dish for serving. Other than that, in terms of presentation, service, taste and price are winners in my books. Sweet-o-logy. Shop UG-22, Level UG, Festival Walk, 80 Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong. 2439 0411.
